A filling is used to repair fractured, damaged or decayed teeth. A filling can be used in the majority of cases to restore a tooth to normal function and appearance.
Even with higher standards of tooth care; regular check-ups, an awareness of which foods to avoid and the numerous products available to help clean and protect our teeth, there are very few people who will escape the need for a filling during their lifetime.
A filling is used to repair a fractured, damaged or decayed tooth. In the majority of cases they are successful in helping to restore it to its normal function and appearance.
The fillings I offer are not only safe and strong but are also aesthetically pleasing in a world where a natural looking, healthy smile is important to many people.
I only use natural looking filling materials (composite) which I match to the colour of my patient’s teeth. None of the fillings I use contain mercury (amalgams) which many consider to be harmful to their health.
In the past, composite (or white coloured) fillings have often been considered less hard-wearing than amalgam, however more modern materials are now available meaning that today they are just as strong and reliable and can be used in front and back teeth .
Depending on location and depth of the cavity a single filling will take around 20-60 minutes to place.
